Las Perlas Del Sur Group's story

The members of this group have been together for thirteen cycles. As you can see, with heir hard work and efforts they have grown. With the help of the foundation, they hope to keep growing and giving their best effort to give their families what they need. They are participating in a poverty elimination survey in order to know the situation of each of them. One of the members is Silvia. She makes chipas (a traditional Paraguayan food) in her house. She is asking for the loan to buy supplies to make the chipas. In the last survey she had good income, but she still is enthusiastic about working in order to keep growing. It is also worth noting the work of the consultants, who do a permanent follow up of trainings and verifications that can be required and at the same time motivate the women to fight to be able to keep progressing.

In this group: Lorena, Silvia, Nanci, Silvia, María, Rita, Luz, Susana, Rosalva, Eva, Jesica, Herminia, Nancy, Lorenza, Gertrudis*
